Hi Corrine,

Lynda.com<https://www.lynda.com/> is a great resource for online learning and has a few tutorials on remediating PDF docs, these tutorials also go over how to create accessible Word/PPT/Excel documents. It is a subscription service, however if you have a library card you may be able to access the content for free using your library card credentials<https://www.lynda.com/portal/sip?org=spl.org>.

Here is a list of the tutorials for creating accessible documents:

1. https://www.lynda.com/Acrobat-tutorials/Creating-Accessible-PDFs-2014/147579-2.html (4 hours of instruction)
2. https://www.lynda.com/Acrobat-tutorials/Creating-Accessible-PDFs-Acrobat-DC/372675-2.html (5 hours of instruction)
3. https://www.lynda.com/Acrobat-tutorials/Advanced-Accessible-PDFs/372674-2.html (2.5 hours of instruction)

The nice thing about these tutorials is that they are self-paced, and they are broken down into chapters which is helpful if you want refer to a specific item.

Subject: [Athen] Training for Students in Course Material Remediation

I would like to train a few of our students in how to remediate course materials (documents, audio and video files) and wonder if any of you would mind sharing existing training curriculum or outlines and/or suggestions in that area.

Most will not have knowledge/exposure to assistive technologies and how they are used but have high interest levels.
